the Netflix series “Julie And The Phantoms” was very well received by critics and viewers in 2020. But the streaming giant canceled the musical comedy series after just one season. Now fans are fighting for a second season and you can help too.

“This show brought so much happiness to so many people and inspired so many to follow their dreams. We all really want to see more of this fantastic show, cast and crew, ”it says on the site.
